Description:
Extensively Pedigreed 1841 B-3 Second Restrike Half Cent, PR66 Brown
1841 1/2 C Second Restrike PR66 Brown NGC. B-3, R.6. EAC PR63. An early state of the reverse with faint diagonal striae slanting up to the right across nearly the entire die.
Perhaps slightly more than a dozen examples of this variety are known. The present piece is one of just four pieces actually listed in Breen's proof census.
A stunning Premium Gem with deeply mirrored fields and sharp design features. The obverse has impressive blue-green, lilac, and iridescent toning, and the reverse is mostly light tan.
